XnView is a feature-rich, customizable media viewer that supports more than 400 formats. Includes batch image converter/renamer as well as basic transformations (rotate, filters, effects, colors, multi-page etc.). Various viewing settings include tabbed interface, fullscreen, slideshow, web page, contact sheet, image compare and filmstrip layout. Includes scanner support, screen capture, Photoshop's 8bf plugins, image search, histogram, metadata viewer, automatic crop (deletes background), watermark, flash export and more. It can also store thumbnails to a temp folder rather than each image folder accessed, which is handy for portable use.

Alternatively, XnView Portable is pre-configured and automatically supports PDF interpreter/rendering engine Ghostscript Portable.

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) v0.6.0

webfork on 3 Sep 2016
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 13 Aug 2016
  • Suggested by ashghost

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) presents a before-and-after image compression view that allows you to reduce file size of an image into JPG, PNG, or GIF format. Includes optional metadata removal, batch operations, compression to a target file size, transparency options, and other common editing functions (flip, rotate, zoom, pan). Notable versus similar software in the ability to gradually reduce the available colors one-by-one (7, 8, 9, 10...), not just milestones of 16, 32, 64, etc.

The program is also available as a plugin for XnView, GIMP, or Irfanview (see website).

Functional in Linux using Wine. Many of the official entries here on PortableFreeware have used RIOT for compression. Note that the installer version of this program is considered adware.

  • Behavior for using the original image if smaller only if we use an option from the batch mode.
  • Resize issues when keep aspect ratio is checked and both dimensions are provided.

@Checker The zip download is for 0.5.0; it appears 0.4.6 is only available as installer

@ Ruby: I changed to v0.5.0 again, but added a note.

@MnX: nice find. :)

Almost perfect! All it lacks is the ability to run a slideshow in random order.

AdrianK_IT on 2015-03-17 15:30

Been experimenting with this app again; was looking for a simple slideshow viewer that responded well to voice commands, for use with a Windows 8.1 tablet. Very good for that; still would like to see a random order option.
